Venom Burst

Discussion about our 5th job venom skill.
First off, our Venom "Burst" does literally no damage.
This may be a bug in GMS because the other versions such as KMS and MSEA actually does damage.
So far, the only thing I find useful (or semi useful at least) is just the additional DoT.
Another thing I found out is you could cast Venom boop in unique conditions such as underground cvel, Damien or cvb disappearing from teleport, and probably when Magnus flies.
I guess if you use sudden raid and follow it with venom boop, it does a tiny bit more damage.
Anyways, is venom burp currently bugged or is it working as intended?

Yeah I thought I was the only one who felt like the damage was very lackluster. If it weren't for the additional line of DoT, I'd probably of scrapped it by now.

Edit: Another thing I forgot to take note of, unlike our regular venom, this version actually applies the DoT effect to mesos used in ME. If you have the range for it, this works sort of like NLs Marks/Venom combo when mobbing which can be useful. I assume it will work for any skills that previously could not apply venom's DoT effect.

its doing damage for me just the damage is so minimal i cant see why id ever use it. Whether or not its an improvement to the base poison or it adds another line of poison with its passive I have it equipped just for that.
